Centegra seeks dogs to use in animal assisted therapy

McHENRY – Centegra Health System’s Caring Paws program is looking for a few good dogs.

Centegra has offered animal assisted therapy for many years and is working to increase the number of patients visited by the furry friends.

The Caring Paws program is offering an animal assisted therapy class from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Centegra Hospital – McHenry. 

Participating dogs must have basic obedience skills and love meeting new people. Upon successful completion of the two-part program, the handler and his or her dog will be eligible for national registration through Pet Partners, a leading resource for the human-animal bond.

The cost of the animal assisted therapy classes is $100. Attendance is required for participation in the evaluation. Registration and payment must be received by Wednesday.

For information or to register, call 815-759-4334.
